“Coffee-Yes, Tea-No”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

The ambiance and the free Wi-Fi were terrific but the good-old fashioned black tea was mediocre with a funny after-taste.

“Great coffee house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

Excellent coffees, etc, windows out to the lake, and a community atmosphere if such a thing is possible where most everyone must be a tourist. The breakfasts were okay. Unremarkable bagels, good scones and pastries (but nothing to write home/TripAdvisor about), and a good and flavorful crepe (note to kitchen: warm the strawberries before you put them in the crepe or the whole thing is like it's been in the fridge). Some service hiccups (served the bacon quiche when I ordered the spinach), but everyone is very pleasant. Will return (actually already did, the next day).
